    His slugging has dropped for 4 straight seasons, going back to his career high of .493 in 2010.  But his OBP and BA and defense have not.   He brings enough else to the table that I don't fret over on more »

    Keep Tazawa where he is.  The Sox need 2 starts for 2015, and will probably have to look to free agency (Shields? Lester?  De La Rosa?) or trades (Hamels?  Latos? Zimmermann?) to fill both spots.  Dou more »

    I have to think either Betts, Owens or both would be required in a package for Hamels and his four years of expensive, but not crazy-over-market, control.   If he could be had for Betts, Webster and C more »

    I doubt they move Tazawa, considering how often the "reliever turned starter" strategy has worked out in baseball history.   And non-closing relievers are important.  They pitch about one third of the more »
